  • Today, we're gonna eat stuff we didn't know we could eat.

  • Let's talk about that.

  • ♪ (theme music) ♪

  • - Good Mythical Morning!. - As you might know, we recently

  • released a video on the rhettandlink channel, a music video called

  • (both) "Are You Gonna Eat That?"

  • - ♪ (heavy electronic music) ♪ - (Rhett singing) Are you gonna at that?

  • It was basically us eating a bunch of stuff, which is kinda the music-video

  • - version ofthis show, at this point. - Our lives. Out lives. Be honest.

  • - But you have seen that we are willing - We eat stuff.

  • to eat lost of things that people might not eat be, uh...

  • - normally in the mood to eat, - Mhm.

  • but everything that we eat is edible, technically. We don't eat things that

  • could kill us, but today, we're gonna play a game...

  • - Like that live, raw chicken. - Yeah.

  • - That we cut right before you ate. - Right, I didn't actually eat it.

  • We eat things that won't kill us, but on today's episode, if you make the

  • wrong choice, you might eat something that'll kill ya.

  • - What? - Is that how it works? No, actually, no.

  • (stammering) But we've devised a way to learn what's edible...

  • - Yes. - …that you didn't know.

  • It's time to play… "Is It Edible or Dead-ible?" subtitle,

  • "Can you eat thator can you eat that thing beside it?"

  • We're gonna take turns, so who's going first?

  • - Me-- I-- you-- me? - (Noah offscreen) Link is gonna go first.

  • - Link's gonna go first. - Oh, thank you!

  • And then Link will have two things in front of him. He has to pick

  • - which one is actually the edible thing. - Which is edible; what's dead-ible.

  • - If I get it right, I get a point... - Yep.

  • and you have to eat the edible thing. If I get it wrong, you get the point,

  • - and I have to eat the thing… - (Rhett) Right.

  • that's edible, but I'm told that none of the things are desirable,

  • - even though their technically edible. - So if you're not able to eat the thing

  • in that round that you have been specified to eat, the other guy gets

  • another point. You'll understand. Let's go ahead and get started with...

  • (both) Round One!

  • - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round One!

  • - ♪ (light jazz) ♪ - All right, waiter Chase, bring it out.

  • If you'd bring it in to me.

  • - Wow, look at that. It's very fancy. - I feel soyeah, it's

  • plastic, but it… (knocking) That's totally plastic.

  • Oh, you shouldn't have revealed that that was plastic.

  • - ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ - (Rhett) Could you say something nice...

  • - …when you reveal it? - (Link) Okay.

  • - Yeah, absolutely. Voilà! - Oh, that's-- oh, very nice, Chase.

  • - "Voilà." - (Link) So I'm going to choose

  • which one of these is edible? What is this?

  • (Rhett) Well, it's gonna be the wrappers.

  • (Noah offscreen) They are both the wrappers, so Starburst and Mexican candy.

  • I think I know that Starburst wrappers are edible, because it's so hard to

  • get 'em off. You just might as well just eat it.

  • So that's what I think, but I'm not gonna put anything past Mexico.

  • I mean, they are sly with the sugar. (rustling) This thing could be sugar...

  • - (Rhett laughing) "This thing." - Smells like a wrapper.

  • - What's your answer? - Uh… I'm almost positive

  • that you can eat a Starburst wrapper, technically. So I'm saying that:

  • - Starburst wrappers. - (Noah offscreen) You are correct.

  • - Okay, so (correct ding), and you have to - (Rhett) Eat one.

  • - eat all three of these. - (Rhett) I have to eat all three of these?

  • (crunchy chewing)

  • Did you put all three in your mouth? (laughing)

  • (Link) Sounds like you're churning butter in your mouth.

  • - (laughing) Round Two! - All right!

  • - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round Two!

  • - All right, this is for Rhett. - Bring her in, Chase.

  • - You coulda tucked your shirt in, Chase. - (laughing)

  • When I go to fancy restaurants, the waiters have their shirts tucked in.

  • - ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ - What's this?

  • - (Link) What do you see, Rhett? Tell us. - (Rhett) I see a plum pit.

  • Obviously a plum is edible, but they're giving me the plum as a reference.

  • Talking 'bout the plum pit. And then there's a dandelion: flower and the seeds.

  • Okay, now… I hope that Chase gnawed the plum off of that pit and you're gonna have

  • - to eat the pit. - (Rhett) I know for a fact, Jack,

  • that dandelion is edible, because you can get it in fancy restaurants.

  • - So I'm gonna go with dandelion. - Okay.

  • - (Noah offscreen) You are correct. - (correct ding) Oh!

  • - (Link) So I'm supposed to eat… - (Rhett) All of it!

  • - You made me eat both those… - Both of these are edible?

  • They're different forms of the same thing.

  • - (Noah offscreen) Both edible. - (Rhett) I hopedon't blow on it!

  • - (Rhett) Oh, it's like a lollipop. - (crew offscreen laughing)

  • Look at that. You took it in just like a lollipop. How is that?

  • - Ooh, it's bitter! - Eat dat.

  • - (Link, deep voice) "Eat dat! Eat dat!" - (laughing) You cannot eat a plum pit,

  • - is the natural implication here. - (Noah offscreen) That's correct...

  • - (loud chewing) - …may contain cyanide, which prevents...

  • - (loud chewing) - …blood from being transported...

  • - (loud chewing) - …transporting oxygen, and you die...

  • - …from asphyxiation. - It's like someone ordered a bad salad,

  • raked off the stuff they didn't want, and forced me to eat it.

  • - Butyou ate it. - But nothing. I did eat it. Yeah.

  • - So you don't get another point. - Next round!

  • - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round Three!

  • -All right, Chaster, bring it in, and… - Could you say "Bon appétit" when

  • - you open it? ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ - (Chase) "Bon appétit!"

  • (Rhett) Whoa, that's turtle!

  • (Link) What is this, like a… like a ear of a… like a Vulcan?

  • That's the top of a chicken's head, dude.

  • - (Link) Oh, no. - (Noah) You're right, that is a cockscomb.

  • I got really scared for a second, then I realized, "You know, I'ma get this right."

  • - (Rhett moaning) - You have to eat it! (manic laughing)

  • You can't eat a turtle shell! How could you get this down, anyway?

  • I think you're gonna get two points this round!

  • - (both laughing) - You can eat this, but I'm not even

  • gonna touch it. The comb of a chicken is edible by some people.

  • - (Noah offscreen) That is correct. - Yes!

  • (Noah offscreen) Many turtle shells have salmonella.

  • - (correct ding) - Ooh, it's greasy. Look at that grease.

  • - How was this prepared? - (Noah offscreen) That was boiled.

  • - (sputters) - It looks like a human ear that's been...

  • - (crew laughing offscreen) - It's just boiled?

  • It looks like a multi-finned fish. I'm [gonna] think [about] it like that.

  • "Oh, look at this three-finned breamfrom the pond."

  • But picture it perched on the top of the chicken.

  • (crew offscreen laughing)

  • - To roosters everywhere. - (Link) It's big!

  • It's this is what's now, what's next? Gosh, you...

  • - (Rhett laughing) Oh! - (high-pitched voice) Oh! (laughing)

  • - Come on, do it, man. Do it. - I can't even get through it.

  • - It's so fatty and so cartilage-y. - (Link) Ugh!

  • - (crunchy stretching) - (Link and crew offscreen gagging)

  • Ugh, ugh, ugh.

  • (crunchy chewing)

  • (crew offscreen laughing)

  • - (crunch) - (Link) I'm sorry, dude.

  • - You know what? Gimme the point. - (mouth full) I can't do it, man.

  • - You don't have a trash can over there. - (gags) I got one.

  • - (correct ding) - Here, eh...

  • - (spitting) - Ooh, there is a trash can over there.

  • - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round Four!

  • Okay, that was bad. I'm afraid where it's going next, but...

  • one of the things we forgot to mention at the top was the grand prize is really

  • good. The person who wins gets to eat this amazing pastrami cheeseburger.

  • Something that you would want to eat, unlike...

  • - Oh… - chicken head that I just ate.

  • And it's-- oh, man, that smells good. So I'm just gonna...

  • - That's what's up for grabs. - Keep my eye on the prize.

  • - Next one, Chase. Bring it on out. - ♪ (light jazz) ♪

  • - This is for me, right? Okay… - Uh, no. This is for me.

  • Oh. Yeah, that's right.

  • - ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ - (Chase) "Bon appétit."

  • - (Rhett) Oh… - What isokay.

  • - What do you think that is, Rhett? - (Rhett) UhThis is something that

  • drops out of a tree. It's like an acorn or something.

  • - What is it? - (Noah offscreen) It's called a rambutan.

  • (Noah) It comes from a medium-sized tropical tree.

  • Okay, and then this is the top of a pineapple.

  • (Link) What's your answer?

  • (Rhett exhales) Pineapple seems like the kinda things that's just like,

  • (silly voice) "Hey, you know what? You can eat the fruit, but stay away from

  • the leaves. They're poisonous." Like you could see, like, Keanu Reeves saying that.

  • - I just did, I think. - (laughing)

  • (Rhett) I'm gonna say that the rrr-AHM-ya-taaaan...

  • - isedible! - (Noah offscreen) You are correct.

  • - Yeah! (correct ding) - Really?

  • Yeah, man. (silly voice) You gotta eat this.

  • Well, stop touchin' it! I don't wanna eat things you've touched. Or this,

  • - for any reason. - (through laughter) Okay.

  • (Noah offscreen) You do cut it open, and there is a small piece inside.

  • - Hm… - What you got in there?

  • (Rhett) Looks like a sea animal. Ooh. Ooh!

  • - Look at that, guys! - (Rhett) I knda want to eat this.

  • (chewing)

  • It tastes like a grape! (Rhett) So there's no issue.

  • There's no issue with me eating it, so I want you to try it.

  • - Whoa. Ram-a-tan! - It's amazing!

  • - Ram-a-TAN! - Ram-a-TAN!

  • - …Is that way you call it? - (Noah offscreen) Rambutan.

  • Rambutan.

  • - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round Five!

  • Bring 'er in! Link, this is your choice.

  • - Oh, yeah, it is. I choose to choose. - Yes.

  • - All right! Oui oui, monsieur! - ♪ (harp glissando) ♪

  • (Rhett) Hey, we're not tipping you, by the way.

  • Okay, so we've gotIs this lard?

  • (Rhett) It's soap.

  • And what is th-- heh, this is like air freshener?

  • Oh, gosh.

  • Okay. This one's pretty easy. (laughing) I knew… (stammering)

  • I can't eat that whole bar of soap! Y'all gotta give me a portion that's...

  • I-- (coughs) I'll give you a portion that's edible. I'm saying that this is

  • edible, and that Rhett is gonna need to eat a portion.

  • - Look, it's got fat floatin' on top. - (Noah offscreen) You are correct.

  • - Okay. (correct ding) Wow, Rhett. - (Noah) Not all soap is edible, however.

  • You have to make sure it's made from natural, non-toxic ingredients...

  • He's eating it. It doesn't… The disclaimers don't matter to me.

  • - (Rhett) So I need a knife. - You rip it apart, and whatever you

  • - rip off is what you have to eat. - Oh! Nooo...

  • Yeah! And try to rip it as small as you can.

  • Okay, then I'll take my fingernail and rip it off.

  • (stammering) With all your fingers.

  • (lip smacking) That was so soapy.

  • All right, justhere. Can I cut you a sliver?

  • Dude, I can tell you from the little fingernail-- Oh my gosh!

  • - There's no way! - (Link) I think you have to eat that much.

  • - (Link) I'll taste a little bit. - Oh, it's so strong!

  • Why'd you get such a strong flavor?

  • - (Link) Oh my goodness. - There's no way I--

  • - I mean, just that… - Ugh! Ugh, yeah. Yeah.

  • - Don't do it. - But I'm down so far now!

  • - Oh, gosh! Just that little bit that's on my tongue is burnin'!

  • - Yeah it's bad. - Mm!

  • - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round Six!

  • Why did I eat what you had to eat? Like, I was so curious.

  • - That was-- - I couldn't believe that is was...

  • - That was all you, brother. - ...bad as you said.

  • - ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ - Can I see the manager?

  • - Oh my goodness. - 'Cause this is hair.

  • - (Link laughing) - (Rhett) And, uh, cardboard.

  • - Is that hair? - (Link) The question is, whose?

  • (Rhett) It looks like it comes from a certain place.

  • - Like Peru. All right... - (crew laughing offscreen)

  • (Rhett) Well, I mean, I know you can eat hair. There are people who eat hair.

  • I think the question is, is it safe to hair? This is difficult.

  • - It is difficult. - I'm gonna say the hair is edible.

  • (Noah offscreen) Unfortunately, that is incorrect.

  • - Oh! (incorrect buzzer) - But you're saying that cardboard is

  • digestible? Try it out. It's digestible. hair is not digestible.

  • I'll also make that argument. If you eat a piece of cardboard, uh...

  • I think it's gonna come out a little altered.

  • (chewing) (exhales)

  • We've eaten paper before. That's a lot better than the soap.

  • - It's pretty nasty. - (Link) Lemme see it.

  • It's stillit's completely still bound as cardboard.

  • - Just give up, man. - I need this point real bad.

  • The point spread isn't that much. Now, I'm about to burp, and I think

  • - it's gonna make a bubble. - There's a lotta fiber in this.

  • Just swallow it. You've swallowed a pill bigger than that before.

  • - (cup hits the table) Down. - Next round.

  • - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round Seven!

  • All right, got a little fiber in your diet. Now it's my turn to decide.

  • (Rhett) It feels like it's expanding!

  • - (Chase laughing) - (Link) Okay, you're gonna drop some?

  • - ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ - Okay...

  • So we have simple green cleaner, and...

  • (Noah offscreen) That is oven grease. From Eddie's oven.

  • (Link) Oven grease is just drippings from food that have been heated.

  • - You would think that's edible. - (Link) But I think there's also

  • oven cleaner in there. That concerns me.
